    DEAR FAMILY, I WILL MISS SEEING MARGARET AT ARBY'S AND THE GROCERY STORE. SHE ALWAYS HAD EYES THAT LITE UP WHEN YOU SEEN HER. WE ATTENDED GLADY BRANCH FOR MANY YEARS TOGETHER. AUNT CORA WAS A GOOD ROLE MODEL FOR HER. SHE LOVED GOD, SHE LOVED HER FAMILY. SHE WAS TRUELY A ANGEL ON EARTH. GOD BLESS YOU.
